Festive Special Series

Hey Everyone,

The weather hasn’t been very cheerful lately, but that should not dampen our spirits right? So keeping up the festive fervor, I bring you another post in my Festive Special series.

In this series, I would be sharing a few of my favorite eye shadows, eyeliners, lip colors and accessories that can be incorporated in your Diwali ensemble to look more gorgeous 🙂


Let’s start with a clear, evened out face – Maybelline’s BB cream is perfect for those who don’t want to look too made up or don’t like foundations much. It evens out the skin gives a nice glow and is ideal for dry weather.

Price: Rs. 199/- for 18 ml


Yes, yes we all were waiting to get to eye makeup. Being the most prominent part of our face, it’s important to get our eye makeup right. So here is my compilation of festive-worthy eyeshadows and eyeliners…


  • Faces Sparkle Dust (loose pigment) no. 22

It’s a dazzling rust-coppery loose pigment with shimmer. It can be used with a wet brush to get better staying power. It is a lovely color that would look good on Indian skin tone. Just sweep it all over the lid, put on your favorite eye liner, two coats of mascara, and you are good to go!

Faces Sparkle Dust no. 22

Price: Rs. 300 (approx.) for 3.5 gms

Here’s the Report Card:


  • Gorgeous color
  • Very opaque
  • Dries fairly quickly
  • Reasonably priced (seeing many of the popular nail enamels come for Rs. 200 and above now)
  • Lot of color options in this new range of Revlon nail colors


  • Low staying power (for me)


Highly recommended for the festive season!

Enjoy the festivities 🙂
